US asset management firm AllianceBernstein has been the latest to team up with the Spanish delegation of the European Financial Planning and Advisory Association (EFPA) for the promotion of continuous training of financial advisers.
The partnership involves the co-launch of various training courses and educational conferences aimed at preparing advisers for the re-certification of the following qualifications: European Investment Assistant (EIA), European Financial Advisor (EFA) and European Financial Planner (EFP).
The agreement will see AllianceBernstein supporting EFPA on the promotion of activities aimed at improving overall the professional training of financial advisers. In return EFPA will support the US manager in the spreading of any activity or communication designed to encourage developments in the field of portfolio management and the adoption of new financial instruments.
The educational agreement raises to 82 the number of EFPA Spain's corporate partners, which include some of the main national and global banking entities and asset managers.
